Hands-On Sushi Workshops

For those of you in the Houston area, Sur La Table is offering a two-hour hands-on sushi and handrolls workshop Tuesday, January 26th. The total cost is $79 and you must be 18 or older to attend.

If you're not in the area (and that's a lot of you!) but would like to learn how to make your own, you might be surprised at what's available in your town. A quick search of "sushi class" + "city name" turns up everything from the Japan-America Society of Indiana's ongoing class to the one-day course at the Los Angeles Sushi Institute of America.

A final sushi footnote: "Philadelphia" rolls, salmon with cream cheese and avocado, are an American invention. Most Japanese I told about them were puzzled or put-off by the idea of mixing cream cheese with rice. Hey, more for me! :)
